    Chumba EVO AM

    A couple of nice pictures (plus some info) of a red EVO in a press release from another thread. Man, that red looks good!

    Cool colour frame Geo. I am really trying hard to like this bike asthetically, hear great things about these bikes. Heavy though, more at the heavy end of the AM arena... Not knocking the bike though

    Geo, are you trying to tell us something

    I'm not getting an EVO...I already have a bike in it's class. I do have a Chumba XCL on order though. Looks similar to the motolite, but beefier. I haven't decided on the color yet...but I like the red!

    Couple questions.

    Does the steeper seat tube make a adjustable fork less necesary?
    If you are in the grey area between sizing how willl this affect fit. I tried a SM/MD and it seemed good and the cocpit was just right. Would I need a longer stem now or do I need to try and step up to the MD/LG?

    ( I belive I'm right on the fence as far as sizing goes.)

    The new AM EVO is pretty interesting. A drop fork is still a good idea, but not as critical as it was with the original geometry.

    If you are in the gray area size wise, get S/M. Due to the uppper seat tube angle, the new geometry is practically a one size fits all. As you extend the seat post, you get more top tube than most bikes at the same time if you can picture that. The new geo proportions work out very nicely with longer posts. I would say you could get a 6 foot guy to fit the S/M, the issue becomes rear bias and how far you are behind the BB.

    I went to a very long stem - 120 mm because of the front end wandering issues with the older frame. That is definitely not necessary, but it actually turns the EVO into an ABOVE average climber (in its class) if you want to set it up with lighter tires, wheels, and other components.

    I have both 06 m/l and 07 s/m

    The m/l is only 1/2 longer TT...but the ETT ranges are about an " or so off. WIth the radical SA/ST, I opt for the m/l if you are over 5'9" or maybe 5'10". The TT is short regardless, but I'm sure you'd prefer less post hanging out. Checkout my post on comparing the two years and you'll see the pic of my 06 EVO...the post is way up there.
